Saakashvili Arrives In Netherlands After Expulsion From Ukraine

Video Security Storms Restaurant In Ukraine To Arrest Saakashvili For Deportation

"Right now I am here, and I will be here for the time being", Saakashvili, 50, said asked if he was planning to stay in the Netherlands.

"We will have millions of people protesting in the streets of Ukraine", Saakashvili said.

"I promise we'll organize mas protest movements and will push the aside peacefully", the Ukrainian TV channel Newsone quoted him.

In July, Saakashvili was stripped of his Ukrainian citizenship while his was visiting the United States, after it was revealed that that he had provided incorrect information on his citizenship application.

He served as governor of Ukraine's Odessa region until he fell out with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, a former close friend.

Saakashvili was detained in Kiev on Monday and deported to Poland.

Saakashvili and a small crowd of supporters shoved their way through a line of guards from Poland into Ukraine in September. Saakashvili resigned from the post in 2016, decrying what he described as high-level corruption in the government.

"It is, like always, good to be here", Saakashvili said to the NOS.

With the help of his supporters, he broke through the Polish-Ukrainian border in September a year ago, and was briefly detained in December in Kiev.

The arrest could have a "negative impact" on Poroshenko's image overseas, said Sergiy Solodkyi, deputy director of the Kiev-based New Europe think-tank. Oligarchs' rule will come to an end much sooner than expected...

He is also wanted by authorities in Georgia on charges of abuse in office - which he also strenuously denies.

Saakashvili's wife, Sandra Elisabeth Roelofs-Saakashvili, was born in the Netherlands and has Dutch citizenship.

He then plans to "go on a tour of Europe" to gain political support for his cause.

"He is very happy here, and thinks it's fantastic", Hammerstein added.
